Analysis of slope-parametric hybrid automata
This paper addresses the analysis of slope-parametric hybrid automata: finding conditions on the slopes of the automaton variables, for some safety property to be verified. The problem is shown decidable in some practical situations (e.g. finding the running speeds of tasks in a real time application, for all tasks to respect their deadlines). The resolution technique generalizes polyhedral-based symbolic analysis and it involves reasoning about polyhedra with parametric shapes.
